    Fantastic Stuka, thanks for this link. You have a lot historic places to see, it could take a lifetime to see everything, I had no idea you had a camp there. I had a relative put to death in Mauthausen in 1942, dunno what for though, security detention?

    Cheers,

    Grant

    Hey Grant,
    sorry to hear about your relative!
    There is a lot to see indeed
    I had a Swiss guy, I met on an other forum, who came over with is family on a tour.
    But he got fed up quiet rapidly, after 3 museum visits, we ended up in the restaurants and the pubs for nearly a week!

    Belgian uniforms from the 19th century:
    Nick, I found this site searching for information regarding Belgium Military uniforms from the early 1900s, or thereabouts.

    I think I have a match... I found a picture of my Great Grandfather titled Maurice Michiels 1914-1918, and no doubt he would have served in the North of Belgium around Turnhout/Antwerp.

    Does this uniform fit in that time period?

    That is a match!!
    It seems to me to be a private in the Gidsen regiment wearing his dress uniform.
    A regiment with a great history!

    Those pictures are real collectibles.
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!

    Default The Royal Museum of the Army and Military History at Brussels, Capital City of Belgium

    When I used to visit that beautiful museum I was short in film and short in time too ... they've locked the entrance cause I've been the last visitor. My main point of interest have been the little tank collection in the gravel yard of the museum

    Just have a look on the pics that I've taken
